Former Local Black Stars midfielder Jordan Opoku is on the brink of rejoining Kumasi Asante Kotoko, Footy-Ghana.com reports.
The 30-year old has started pre-season training with the club at Adako Jachie as coach Steven Polack has expressed an initial interest in signing the intelligent player but has to observe him during the trial period to be sure of what sort of player he is before he sanctions his transfer to improve his squad ahead of the new season.
It will be the third time the playmaker will be joining the Porcupine Warriors if he wins a contract.
Opoku firstly joined Asante Kotoko from Gomoa-Fetteh Feyenoord in 2006 and remained in Kumasi until 2011 as he went on to win the Ghana premier league in 2007/08 before leaving for a brief stint in Armenia. He returned to the local scene but this time in the blue colours of Berekum Chelsea with whom he remarkably reached the 2012 Champions League group stage, forming a formidable midfield partnership with Jackson Owusu.
From Berekum Chelsea, the Feyenoord Academy product returned to Kumasi to win the 2013/14 league title as a key part of Masud Didi Dramani’s triumphant side but left after the 2015 season for Thailand and is currently available as a free agent.
The experienced Opoku will however offer more credible competition for first team regulars Seth Opare and Jackson Owusu than likes of Edwin Tuffour, Prince Acquah and Isaac Quansah did last season.
